New ABC Sitcom Features Latina As Lead Actress – No, She's Not a Maid


Despite some silly headlines by the Hollywood press (“Cristela Alonzo Brings Mexican-American Humor And A Laugh Track To ABC’s Lineup”), let’s just say this: there is now a TV sitcom with a Latina character as the lead—a Latina character who is not a maid, a Latina character who doesn’t speak with a crazy bad accent or is oversexualized (hello, Sofía), a Latina character who (wait for it) is from here and represents a great majority of real Latina women we know.
That alone is reason enough to give “Cristela” a chance. We sure will.
